THE MOMENTUM CONTINUES: MIDYEAR UPDATE
It’s hard to believe we are already half way through 2017. While the year is flying by, so is the progress we are making on our development plans! So far this year, we’ve added functionality to the Talent Module to provide an enhanced talent experience and more flexibility for recruiters, released new functionality on our Job Board Module including integrated social media sharing on Job Postings, and continued to evolve our Recruiter Module to make it usable on the go! The Recruiter Module now provides every recruiter and sales professional mobile sales functionality, faster search and Message logging no matter where they are working!
Throughout the first half of 2017, we made a commitment to focus on a “Day in the Life of a Recruiter” and we remain dedicated to this mission. In this ever-changing economy, it’s critical that recruiters have the tools they need to be fast, thorough and nimble – not only to find talent, but to get talent working as quickly as possible with all the right paperwork in place!
THE LOOKING GLASS
Avionté: The Past, Present and Future
As many of you upgrade to and start using Suite 17.1, we hope you are seeing the benefits of these new features and functionality to help improve efficiency at your organization! As far as what’s next, we will be focusing on adding a Contact in the Recruiter Module, adding Equifax WOTC as a part of the Application Workflow, as well as focusing on talent tasks and self-serve eDocuments (eDocs) in our upcoming releases.

Compliance Round Up
OSHA Recordkeeping Update
As we noted in a previous Compliance Corner in October 2016, OSHA issued an electronic recordkeeping rule requiring certain employers to submit their injury and illness information electronically. The electronic filing requirements were to go into effect July 1, 2017, however, with that deadline less than a month away, OSHA has delayed the required filing with no new deadline announced.
The update from the OSHA website is below and you can stay tuned tohttps://www.osha.gov/recordkeeping/index.html for additional updates:
Updated Electronic Submission of Records
OSHA is not accepting electronic submissions of injury and illness logs at this time, and intends to propose extending the July 1, 2017 date by which certain employers are required to submit the information from their completed 2016 Form 300A electronically. Updates will be posted to this webpage when they are available.
President Trump’s Paid Family Leave
The White House released President Trump’s proposed 2018 budget at the end of May featuring the widely covered 19.8% cut to the Department of Labor and an increased focus on national security through additional funding to the Department of Homeland Security (6.8%) and Department of Defense (10.1%). Also included in the budget, paid family leave. On the campaign trail, Trump called for paid leave for mothers that aren’t offered leave from their employers. In the budget now, there is a plan for six weeks of paid family leave for mothers and fathers, including adoptive parents. The $18.5 billion cost (over 10 years) would come from reforming unemployment insurance, including reducing fraud. To become law, the details of the plan will need to be set forth and passed by Congress. It may face some push back from Congress by Republicans that oppose paid leaves and by Democrats that don’t think it does enough.
